Whipped Yogurt with Lime and Fruit

Serves 4.


    Lime, vanilla, and soothing honey turn Greek yogurt into a special occasion-worthy dessert. This treat is akin to a fruit-topped no-bake cheesecake, but comes together so much faster.


    Beauty fruit focus: Lime, kiwi, mango, blueberry, and cherry

    Power fruits

    Explore a wide range of beautifying fruits to top your dessert including vitamin C-packed kiwis and mangos, crunchy pomegranate seeds, ripe blueberries, and fibre-rich raspberries. Anything tender with a hint of acidity will work well with the creamy whipped yogurt.

      • 3 Tbsp (45 mL) honey or maple syrup, plus more for serving
      • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) lime zest, plus more for serving
      • 2 tsp (10 mL) lime juice
      • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract

      To stand mixer fitted with whisk attachment, add yogurt, cream, honey or syrup, lime zest, lime juice, vanilla, and salt. Begin whisking on low to incorporate ingredients, then slowly turn the speed up to high and whip until thickened, 4 to 5 minutes. Cover and chill completely for 2 hours or up to 1 day, or serve right away (it will not be as thick if you skip the chilling).


      To serve, spoon and swoop whipped yogurt into small bowls and top with fruit. Drizzle with additional honey and top with an extra sprinkle of lime zest. Serve immediately.

      Wild Salmon with Ramp Salsa Verde

      Wild salmon is by far the best salmon you can get — it is sustainable and is more healthful than farm raised. Over-fishing, pollution, and the damming of rivers have depleted populations of wild salmon around the world, but in the Pacific Northwest locals are fiercely active in their efforts to protect the wild salmon population. A few years ago my sister surprised me with a chartered fishing trip out of Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, which was a great opportunity to learn about the native species of fish in the area, including salmon. Sadly, the salmon evaded us that day, but we did accidentally catch a bald eagle that snatched a cod we were reeling in. The bird got tangled in the line and for a minute we were really concerned we would have to remove the line from an angry bald eagle. Lucky for everyone it managed to free itself and we were all spared.
